A Special

Place For

Those With

Special

Needs

It’s not easy being exceptional. You stand out…or you don’t. You’re left out…or you’re kept in. Yet, you have social needs just like everyone else. That’s why The Exceptional Foundation of West Tennessee was founded. We are a non-profit organization providing social, recreational, and continued educational needs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We offer holistic programming in a safe, welcoming community for individuals with a variety of disabilities.

I love the Exceptional Foundation because it’s like a home away from home, I have so many friends there, the staff is wonderful…If there was no Exceptional Foundation it would be a sad world and there wouldn’t be much to do.

EFWT Participant

Words cannot express the love I have for EFWT. With me, it’s all about trust. My son is autistic and very easily persuaded. I used to always keep him close because people can be cruel. EFWT is the only place in the world where he can go without me and I am perfectly comfortable. I love EFWT!

Roseanne loves to leave our house to mix and mingle. I love that EFWT is a safe place for me to send her. I appreciate Roseanne being treated like everyone else, not treated based on a disability but treated right. Maxine S.

It’s time. We can’t do it without you.
